'Windows Mobile' is now 'Windows Phone' Microsoft has noted that Windows Mobile will soon be known instead as Windows Phone, after an official name/brand change.
Microsoft reps, according to The Inquirer say the naming change will affect Windows 6.1, 6.5 and the upcoming WM 7 and will hopefully clear up the confusion brought by multiple versions of the mobile OS.

The name change will also "reflect the upcoming desktop operating system release where people away from their PC can have the same experience everywhere," concludes the software giant.

I want some of what they are smoking! Without a keyboard, mouse, and 3D graphics card, it will never be even close.

And it's to get away from how clunky Windows Mobile is. Using the Diamond now and I hate it.

Mobile does sound better.

They should be more concerned with how the OS works than what they call it.
